Bio and Links
Bio Photo *It's sad to see people not following fag rules anymore and people being so impolite when contacting others.

I try to be understanding in my requests to other people in sacs or about correcting mistakes (mine or others), but lately it just seems that other peoples etiquette has gone right out the window.

I don't delete my posts on my page because I have no problem with people seeing a conversation. I can't help other people hide the nastiness they have by deleting my initial questions to them on their pages.

And No there's no obligation for me to add my personal email onto my profile page, because you can contact me through fag just fine either sac or on my page.

Be polite and courteous to others

Since 2009 I have been working on preserving the Greenwood Cemetery. I started out taking care of a few family members there and then found more and more. I am related somehow to almost 1/2 of the cemetery.

I have been going through the cemetery stone by stone trying to physically place all the graves. I'm also trying to add names to the stones that are unreadable, which is very very hard! Sometimes I find a stone which just says mother or father even

I have been going through obituaries, church records, cemetery books, county birth records, funeral home records, and death records just trying to make sure every one is found and taken care of.

If you are within the FAG guidelines I will GLADLY transfer too.

The Greenwood cemetery is done. There maybe the occasional found ancestor in the obits or death certs, but all the photos (Except for recent burials like 2013 to 1015) have been taken of every stone I could find.

FAG Rules Regarding Submitting Information / Creating Memorials

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?

Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.

FAG Rules regarding duplicates:

** If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. YOU SHOULD NEVER DELIBERATELY CREATE A DUPLICATE MEMORIAL.

FAG guidelines regarding photos:

** Not obtaining permission before using others photos is a violation of copyright law and is against Find A Grave policy.

I found a photo of a relative on Find A Grave, can I use it?

Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use. In general if you did not take the photo yourself, you do not hold the copyright to the photo.


"I don't want to submit my information and then see it for sale here or on another site. Will Find A Grave always remain a free site?

Find A Grave has been around for over ten years. Our stated goal has always been to remain a free site for everyone. We have no plans on changing that. Additionally, we claim no copyright or 'ownership' of any photos that are posted to Find A Grave. THEY REMAIN YOUR PROPERTY. If we were to turn evil and start charging people to view YOUR photos against your wishes, you would have every LEGAL RIGHT to demand that we remove them. But we're not planning on turning evil, so it shouldn't be an issue."

Do NOT steal photos from findagrave to use in your family trees on or for that matter either.

Do not copy, or post to any website, any of the pictures that I've added to Find-a-Grave Memorials.

Thank you.

RE: Eugene Nicodemus
Sorry! I don't have anything that shows a Sr attached to his name. I went ahead and deleted the edit.

RE: Biseli
Just finished loading the last of my St. Mary's stones onto Findagrave this a.m. A couple of weeks back I noticed that the entries were only 64% covered with pics, so I decided to do something about that, and photographed the entire cemetery. Plugging the holes, as it were, I added another 20+% to the overall tally. The remainder either never had stones, or the stones are so badly rotted as to have nothing left to read.

Catharine Ann Procunier
Sorry but in my old age I made a big mistake, Catharine Ann Procunier #18207340 was only married to William B. Benson and not Adolphus Grant Benson. Adolphus is her son. However Adolphus was married to Sarah Catherine "Sadie" Mitchell Beers #39803656 Sarah was married second to Noah Beers #39803626
Sorry about the mix up.

RE: Jesse Gottshall
Hello, and thanks for getting back to me.

Please use the following, more detailed account from the Sept. 8, 1902 Altoona Tribune:

A fatal railway accident occurred on the Cresson and Clearfield division of the Pennsylvania railroad at Frugality at 3.30 o'clock yesterday morning which cost the lives of two Altoona brakemen Jesse Ellis Gottshall, of 974 Twenty-sixth street, and Clarence Edgar Steel, of 1720 Seventh avenue. The former was instantly killed and the latter died just as he was about to be sent to the Altoona hospital. Both had been railroading but a short time. Steel was only making his third trip while Gottshall had been braking since February. The train was made up of loaded coal cars and was bound toward the main line at Cresson. While on a steep grade near Frugality it parted. The two sections ran together with a crash, wrecking six cars. Brakemen Gottshall and Steel were riding on the wrecked cars and were caught in the wreckage. The trainmen on missing them immediately set about to find them among the ruins of the cars. Steel was the first one they came across, and he was badly injured, They got him out and had about completed preparations when he died. The body of Gottshall was recovered under the pile of wreckage and his death was certainly instantaneous, as he had been crushed under the weight that rested upon him. Their bodies will be brought to this city this morning and given to their families. Jesse Ellis Gottshall was a son of Samuel and Mary Gottshall, of 974 Twenty-sixth street, and was aged 19 years. He entered the service of the Pennsylvania Railroad company as a brakeman, and previous to that time drove for the City Hand laundry. He was a steady young man and had a wide circle of friends, who will learn of his" untimely death with sincere regret. He was a member of the Pennsylvania Railroad Relief association. Besides his parents he is survived by three brothers, Harry E., Charles F. and Arthur W., and one sister, Miss Elenora, all at home.
